Prince Harry visited his father yesterday after the news broke of his cancer diagnosis

Prince Harry could have stayed with the royals but 'went to a hotel', a royal commentator has claimed.

The Duke of Sussex flew over to the UK yesterday to meet with his father after news broke of the King's cancer diagnosis.

GB News royal commentator Jenny Bond claimed the meeting between King Charles and Prince Harry would have been "awkward".

Harry quit his position as a senior royal in January 2020 and moved to the US. He has since done various interviews about the Royal Family and criticised them heavily in his biography, Spare, released last year.

Speaking to Emily Carver and Tom Harwood on GB News, Bond said: " You can't wave a magic wand and put this family back together again. That's become very apparent."

She explained: "Harry could bunk down in Clarence House, where he used to live and he'd have the house to himself.


"Or he could go to Sandringham, perhaps by car, if he wasn't going to go in the helicopter with his father and his stepmother.

"Neither of those things happened. Instead, he went off to a hotel and goodness knows what he did with himself.

"Goodness knows whether there's going to be another meeting or he's going to jet straight back to California. It's a very strange and odd situation altogether."

Bond also spoke about the "rift" that has formed between Harry and his brother Prince William.

She said: "We got the news that there is no plan for William to meet Harry.

"We have been told that there are indications that Harry would be willing to meet his brother if that was on offer but I think William has shown that he has disowned Harry.

Bon said that there is a "rift" between Prince William and Prince Harry


"He doesn't want to know him, probably doesn't even like him anymore, and Harry is just not part of his life.

"I think that the rift is so deep now, that has been shown by Harry being here and them not meeting. It is so deep that I do wonder if it can ever be mended."

Prince Harry travelled to the UK alone, leaving his wife Meghan Markle and children Archie and Lilibet in California.

Prince William has been busy caring for his wife, Princess Kate, who recently underwent "planned abdominal surgery".

Since leaving the Royal Family, Harry and Meghan have made several negative statements about the Prince and Princess of Wales.
